The title character was based on the author's daughter, Kathy Kohner-Zuckerman, and her adventures growing up in the surf culture on the beach at Malibu in the 1950's. As of this note (July 2006), she is 62, petite, healthy and attractive and living in Pacific Palisades with her husband of 42 years.

Gidget is a really cute story.It shows the teens of today like myself what the teen movies we love today were like as they were just getting popular...it shows what the teens enjoyed before American Pie,She's All that and Cruel Intentions etc. I saw this in class but i'm glad i did...its becoming one of my favorite movies...yea some of it is kind of cheesy since its from 1950's but if your a teen and you see it in Blockbuster one day...rent it! you'll enjoy it.
